With Sharp Eyes

Hello everybody!  I hope you guys are well.  I wanted to share a poem that I wrote a long time ago (before I had my children) and had it self published into an anthology.  I wanted to see my work printed in a book.  Hopefully, one day when I really stop procrastinating and trying to be a perfectionist (when it comes to writing), I will be a published writer with an actual salary.

The words are self-explanatory and the person who inspired me to write this is real.

The last poem I wrote was about two years ago and it was pretty emotional.  It was inspired by a phone call I received from my sister who had just been given the news of a friend’s passing.  She was very distraught and I wanted to physically comfort her, but I was at home with no means of reaching her quickly.  I did my very best to express how sorry I was for her loss and that I wanted her to be safe.  It was very hard to hang up, but we promised to keep each other updated.  I sat in my living room alone for a while and in order to release the sadness inside of me, I picked up a notepad and started writing.  I haven’t written anything new simply because I’m not as disciplined in writing as I should be.  I am trying to change that though.  One day at a time.

Take good care all.

Until next time…

I have no words.  Just sadness in my heart and mind.  Can’t stop thinking about this.  Can’t stop reading every article, every last detail.  Makes no sense at all.  Rest in peace.

Please take good care.
Until next time…
